Came down on a Tuesday evening for a catch up with a mate, good selection of beers on tap. There was a quiz going on that seemed very popular.

My daughter took me here for lunch and the food was ok - effectively a cheese toastie. Lovely house red, excellent service and a very large patio area. It was however the quietest I've even seen the Cuckfield.
